Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Petrus Christus was born in 1410 in Baerle, a town on the borders of Holland.  He moved to the prosperous merchant city of Bruges with his wife and became a free master in its painters' guild in 1444. He may have worked there first as an apprentice to Jan van Eyck. When he began to paint shortly after acquiring citizenship in Bruges, all of Europe seemed to be in dramatic flux, economically, socially, politically and artistically.  Looking at Christus' painting, you have the feeling (showing 500 of 1643 characters).
